IronPigs cool off PawSox; Ortiz late scratch with heel pain

April 15, 2013

PAWTUCKET – The Pawtucket Red Sox, already off to its finest start to a season in club history, seemed poised to move to 10-1 after holding a 3-1 cushion through seven innings on Monday night.
But righty reliever Chris Carpenter surrendered the Lehigh Valley IronPigs five runs in the top of the eighth, and the PawSox ultimately suffered an 8-3 International League-North beatdown before 3,849 fans at McCoy Stadium.

Villa Novans walk off with first win of season

April 15, 2013

WOONSOCKET — A walk-off win that results in Woonsocket High’s first triumph of the season. That was the narrative of the Villa Novans’ come-from-behind performance on Monday.
You hate to associate “must win” with a game that takes place during the second week of the regular season. Standing at 0-2 in Division I-North and 0-3 overall, Woonsocket understood that halting the slide was imperative against a St. Raphael outfit that was seeking to maintain its pristine ways.

McGair: Plenty of blame to go around in R.I. high school football officials saga

April 14, 2013

A little of this, a little of that …

There’s plenty of blame to go around now that a Massachusetts group has been given the responsibility to assign, evaluate and train officials for Ocean State-based games.
It’s the result of an embarrassing fallout exposing unfortunate and regrettable decisions made by all involved parties in the saga over the fate of Rhode Island high school football officials.

April 14, 2013

PAWTUCKET -- Freshly activated off the disabled list, Mitch Maier made a thrilling debut at McCoy Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
Maier, a 30-year-old center fielder who suffered a left wrist sprain back on March 17, spent the last few weeks in extended spring training, and he admitted being anxious about returning to the diamond.

Quick Decision: Woonsocket's Nordby suffers first MMA loss

April 13, 2013

LINCOLN – June 17, 2011 is one of the most memorable days of Kody Nordby’s life, and it’s not just because that was the day he graduated from Woonsocket High.
Rather, it’s what happened immediately after he received his diploma. Nordby hustled to the Holiday Inn in Mansfield, Mass. to make his amateur debut against Mark Johnson of Brighton, Mass. at the AFO’s (American Fighting Organization) Summer Brawl II.

Ortiz continues to pile up positive results for red-hot PawSox

April 13, 2013

PAWTUCKET — The story on Saturday afternoon wasn’t so much that the Pawtucket Red Sox assembled a mammoth sixth-inning rally to snag a 7-1 Game 1victory over the Rochester Red Wings at McCoy Stadium, but instead that David Ortiz played a key role in it.
The 37-year-old designated hitter, on a 20-game rehab stint with Pawtucket after suffering a right Achilles’ injury in a triumph over the Chicago White Sox last July 16, delivered a two-run ground single to right to help his club extend its lead to 4-1 – and continue Pawtucket’s finest-ever start to a season.

Cumberland's Constantino set to tackle Boston Marathon, break elusive three-hour mark

April 12, 2013

CUMBERLAND – For runners like Dave Constantino, the unicorn on the logo of the Boston Marathon has been fitting.
For nearly a decade at the hallowed 26.2-mile race, the 43-year-old Cumberland native has tried to track down his own personal unicorn – that is, break the 3-hour mark – but each time, he’s fallen short.
And he has come oh-so-close. Two years ago, his time was 3:04:46. The previous year, he ran a 3:07:40. And in 2006, his second trip to Boston, he turned in a 3:09:27.

Rainouts placing a damper on PawSox' pregame routine

April 12, 2013

PAWTUCKET – From a win-loss perspective, the Pawtucket Red Sox can’t ask for much more. Winners of six of seven games, it seems that Mother Nature, not the opposition, is the team’s toughest foe in the season’s early stages.
Friday’s postponement of Rochester-Pawtucket marks the second time in three days that the pitter-patter of raindrops has come into play for Gary DiSarcina’s ball club. This past Wednesday saw Pawtucket play two innings at Lehigh Valley before the game was halted in the second inning due to rain.

Ortiz hopes to ‘get that engine going’ in rehab stint

April 11, 2013

PAWTUCKET – It was clear that David Ortiz was in no mood to stroll down memory lane.
Asked if he felt a touch of nostalgia upon returning to McCoy Stadium for the first time since the memorable three-game show he put on during the summer of 2008, the Red Sox slugger offered a wry smile. After being down for so long, it’s clear that Ortiz is using his rehab stint with the PawSox as a prime opportunity to make up for lost time.
“Been a while, huh? Yeah, man, just coming down here to get some at-bats and get that engine going,” said a succinct Ortiz.
